Now that summer is slowly fading away, I’m sure you have the urge to spend as much time as possible outside, soaking up the last rays of sun and breathing in the warm and pleasant fresh air. But if you’re lucky enough to own an outdoor space, whether a yard or a small balcony, you can still enjoy the fresh air even as the weather gets colder. Considering the weather forecast for the upcoming autumn, it is very likely that you might get to use your outdoor space well until winter time. To help you savour every last bit of the wonderfully pleasant weather, here are some outdoor accessories that can help maximise your comfort.
There’s no better way to define your chill out zone than with outdoor accessories meant to offer comfort, such as pillows. Piling on some stylish pillows on your chairs, bench, or simply on the floor around the table as alternative seating, helps create a cosy and warm atmosphere. Besides making your outdoor space more comfortable, pillows also help extend your interior style outside your front door. Since there’s not much you can do décor-wise for your outdoor lounge area, stylish pillows can be used as charming statement pieces to set the style you aim to achieve. To capture that autumn mood, consider traditional autumn colours like yellow, orange, brown, and maroon.
Sure, the sun is going to start setting earlier and your outdoor living space won’t get much daylight, but is there anything more romantic than fighting the cold in the warm embrace of your loved one, under the soft glow of the stars? Since the stars alone won’t be able to provide enough light for your outdoor space, a good choice of lighting can help you set a romantic mood and also maximise functionality. Consider some unobtrusive choices like wall or string lights, or if there’s no opportunity for mounting – lanterns, which can also add a bit of a vintage touch. Alternatively, scented candles can also create a twinkling glow and pleasant fragrances that make for a cosy and warm atmosphere.
A true outdoor space fit for autumn, is the one where you can snuggle up as though you’re inside. Therefore, adding some outdoor accessories which will help keep you warm is a must, like for instance rugs and blankets. A gorgeous, thick rug can help you define the limits of your lounge area and also allow you to take off your shoes for a change without feeling the cold tiles underneath your feet. Choose any design to your liking, but make sure it is able to withstand rain since autumn whether can be unpredictable. Throwing some additional blankets will enable you to spend hours of relaxation outdoors and feel comfortably warm.
